Gad’s history lessons are dedicated to D-Day this week, to honour the soldiers who died at the Battle of Normandy.

Junior and Senior students are learning more about the landing operations on 6 June 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II.

Classmates have also been finding out about how people all over the world are commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

Yesterday, students, parents and teachers gathered on the school field to wait for a glimpse of a flyover of a fleet of Douglas DC-3/C-47 Dakotas, launched at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford.

Although the flypast was delayed, Gad’s wait wasn’t in vain as parents chatted happily in the sunshine while Head of English Mr Paul Wadey, led a game of baseball.  Thank you to the families who sent in pictures of the display later that day.

Earlier in the day, Gad’s Headmaster, Mr Paul Savage, talked to Kindergarten and Junior children about British values and the importance of striving to uphold them, in morning assembly.
